LibriVox recording of Call of the Wild, by Jack London.

In this novel (often mistakingly classified a children’s book) the main protagonist Buck, a St. Bernard/Collie mix, is abducted and sold to a trainer of sled dogs in Alaska. He adapts to the brutal conditions and is finally acquired by a loving man. When this new owner is killed, Buck follows the ‘call of the wild’ and joins a pack of wolves. (Summary written by Gesine)

Subject: Another solo version available
To McDowellray,

There is another solo Librivox recording of Call of the Wild, read by Mark Smith. If you prefer a single reader, I highly recommend Mark.(a/k/a Kaffen) Everything he reads is outstanding.

Subject: Love the book, love librivox, hate splitting up books
I know it has to be difficult, but consistancy means a lot when reading a book. I was taken aback when I first listened to the book and suddenly found that the reader had changed. There's a lot to be said for having a single reader unless you use different people for the various characters.

I tried to listen to Tom Crawford's version, but did not find that to my tastes either. I'm a sad case, I know, since I'm sure all concerned are better readers than me.

For what it's worth, I'm trying to join LibriVox as a reader, but will shy away from the reader per chapter process. Just my personal preference.

Great story, all the readers were good in my opinion!

Subject: last readers
the last reader is the famous miette, among my personal audiolit favourites.

the previous reader, jean, does an excellent and crisp reading...

so i'd suggest other listeners have a listen for themselves and make up their own minds.

Subject: Odd voice?
A good audio book spoiled by the last reader: Jean O'Sullivan who's peculiar voice is a melange of Inspector Clouseau, Pauline "Pens" from League of Gentlemen and Mrs Bouquet in Keeping Up Appearances. I know this is done for free but has no-one told her that she's impossible to listen to? I had to stop and shall re-read the last chapter in paper form.

Subject: Wild!
A great book and well worth listening to.

The text truly comes alive when read aloud.
